Plantains look similar to bananas, but plantains are bigger, have a different taste, and texture. However, plantains and banana's do have one thing in common, as the plantain ripens, it becomes sweeter and its color changes from green to yellow to black, just like bananas. Green Plantains are sold in the fresh produce section of most supermarkets.


Ingredients


3 green plantains

¼ cup all-purpose flour

¼ cup whole milk

½ cup sweetened condensed milk

¼ cup of raw sugar     

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

5 cups of water


Directions

Cut off the tips of each plantain and make an incision along the whole length of the banana. Slowly slide your thumb along the incision and remove the skin. Chop the plantain place into a blender. Add flour and ½ cup water blend for 2 minutes until smooth (add more water if needed). Bring the remaining cups of water to boil in a large saucepan reduce to medium heat. Add the plantain mixture to the boiling water and stir for about 3 minutes or until smooth. Add remaining ingredients. Let porridge simmer for about 15 minutes serve warm.
